Daniel C. Dantini, M.D.
The Main Idea:
Fibromyalgia is a painful, debilitating disease
that affects 4 to 6 million Americans. It is often difficult to diagnose and
even more difficult to treat. However, Dr. Daniel Dantini is convinced that
fibromyalgia is caused by viruses, which respond to anti-viral medications, and
he’s got a track record to support his claim.
Why Is This Newsworthy?
Over the past twenty-two years, Dr. Dantini has
treated nearly 10,000 fibromyalgia patients, and he reports a 70 percent success
rate in ending patients’ pain. His findings show that the disease is caused by
one or more of these viruses: Epstein-Barr, cytomegalovirus, herpesvirus 6, and
parvovirus. Blood tests determine whether any of these viruses are active.
Who is Dr. Daniel Dantini?
Daniel Dantini, M.D. is a board-certified
otolaryngologist and an allergy and immunology researcher. He started
researching fibromyalgia when he was stricken with the disease in 1986.
Eventually, he treated himself successfully with anti-viral medications. Dr.
Dantini is author of the new book The New Fibromyalgia Remedy—Stop Your
Pain Now with an Anti-viral Drug Regimen (Addicus Books, February 2008). The
book explains diagnosis and treatment protocols, advancing Dantini’s theory of
the cause and treatment of fibromyalgia.
What Is Fibromyalgia?
Fibromyalgia is a disease that affects the body’s
soft tissues, causing pain and stiffness in the muscles and supporting
structures such as the ligaments, bursas, and tendons. (It does not affect
joints, but rather the surrounding tissues.) A person having pain in at least
eleven of eighteen “tender points” over a three-month period is considered
to have fibromyalgia.
Among the Points Dr. Dantini Discusses:
- Symptoms of fibromyalgia and why it can be
difficult for doctors to diagnose.
- How these viruses work and medications used
in the anti-viral regimen.
- How readers can to talk to their own doctors
about the Dantini regimen.
- Fibromyalgia’s link to chronic fatigue
syndrome and delayed food allergies.
